James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore has died at the age of 89 after a ‘short but brave’ battle with cancer, his family have revealed. In a statement announcing his death, the London-born family said that the iconic actor had been ‘surrounded’ by love in his final days in Switzerland.
It added: ‘It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father has passed away today in Switzerland after a short but brave battle with cancer.
‘The love with which he has surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.’
The star’s family – including his children Deborah, Geoffrey and Cristian – revealed his funeral will take place in Monaco, where he lived with fourth wife Kristina Tholstrup.
The statement added: ‘Our thoughts must now turn to supporting Kristina at this difficult time, and in accordance with our father’s wishes there will be a private funeral in Monaco.’
